Woodpecker ~ Walk On My Property ~ Deer vs Buck Poo ~ Madrone Bees ~ Sandy's Crab Pie Dip ~ Sausage Bagel Pouch ~ Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Good 34ยบ clear sunny morning. Such an enjoyable change! 
The woodpecker has been busy on my wood utility pole....
Dude and I took a walk down to the lower part of my property... Hadn't been there in a long time... new trees coming up...
The house from down there....

I saw this pile of poop and was not sure what it was. Well, it turns out, after talking to Mike, this is buck poo.
It's different than the doe poo, which is small droplets...

As we came back towards the house I walked by the Madrone tree.

OMGOSH! It sounded like a beehive! All the blooms were coming out and every bee around must have been up there!
Dude enjoyed the walk. Me too, such a nice day! 

This recipe shared by my pal Sandy (Todoran) Beck wayyyyyyy back when. It's sooooooooooo good.... Thanks Sandy!

Americans have been enjoying this springtime cake since the early 1900s when many cakes were made in cast iron skillets.
To make a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, line the bottom of a cake pan with pineapple rings. A cherry is then placed in the center of each ring followed by a butter and sugar mixture.  Cake batter is then poured over the pineapples and baked.  When the cake is done, it is turned upside down onto a platter before serving, revealing a delightful and delicious masterpiece.

Prep: 20 mins.
Cook: 50 mins
Total Time: 1 hr. 10 mins.
Servings: 12 – 15
  • 1 can pineapple rings
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter

Preheat oven to temperature required on cake box. Drain and save juice from canned pineapple rings. Mix cake batter according to directions on box, use pineapple juice in mixing (be sure to adjust liquids accordingly). Grease bottom and sides of 9 x 13 cake pan, melt butter and pour into pan. Next place crumbled brown sugar into the butter, place pineapple rings and cherries over brown sugar in bottom of cake pan. Pour cake mix over everything and bake according to time on cake box.
Once baked and out of oven place serving plate upside down over pan and turn over both plate and pan together. Leave pan remaining over cake to allow brown sugar mixture to drizzle over cake. Carefully remove pan and serve your pineapple upside down cake warm. Serve with whipped topping.
